Lord , what have I but empty hands.
And aching feet from hopeless quests ,
And memories of barren lands.
And days and years of sore unrests ?
The censer that I fain would swing
Holds neither fragrant herb nor spice i
There are no first-fruits I may bring
To heap In thanKful sacrifice.
Shall I amid life's stubble glean
To find the grain the harvest leaves.
Then gaze , contented and serene.
The while my neighbors count their sheaves ?
There is no gold , nor house , nor land
That I may thanK. Thee it is minoi
I may not measure with , my hand \ , ( < *
Thy tithing of my corn and wine. * .i ] '
Had I all these , then might I Kneel
And pray with , fervent , easy speech
That were an echo of myweal , >
Of all that was within my reach.
Shall I with Pharisaic grace
Bow down and play the hypocrite.
And fling my prayer in Thy face
With , not a heartbom word in it ? *
Nay , not in money let me count
The worth of all that I have hadi
Nor mlserllKe tell the amount
Of whcxt rich gifts have made me glad.
Though I have tasted of defeat ,
Still have I left the strength to rise.
The tempter or the foe to meet
With newer courage in my eyes.
So , thus I pray with , empty hands
But not , Lord , with an empty heart t
Though from fair houses and rich landa
My lines are ever cast apart
Poor in all things save thisi That I
Need never thanK Thee for my spoil
And that there is no haunting sigh
To breaK my slumber after toil.

DAY OF FAMILY REUNIONS
Thanksgiving Not Complete If a Face
Is Missed From the House
During the first long winter In Ply
mouth one-half the little band of pll-
grlms died. The winter snow covered
their leveled graves , and when spring
warmth removed that friendly coverIng -
Ing the survivors planted grain above
the graves , that waving blades of
wheat or corn might hide the colony's
loss from the cruel eyes of the foe
whom fear alone restrained from open
warfare. The pilgrims' hearts were
stout , and though their eyes might
grow dim at times in looking over the
fields where only mysterious patches
of a brighter green revealed to their
ead knowledge the secret of a hidden
grave , they dashed away the tears
and only strove the
more to carry on
the task those tired fingers had let
fall. And when autumn came with Its
abundant harvest the great thanksgiv
ing feast they held was in communion
wlth the lost. Secure in the belief
that their dear ones in happier
spheres were rejoicing with them ,
they gave thanks for home , for har
vest , and for hope.
Since then Thanksgiving day has
been a day of family reunions. The
distant son returns , the grandchildren
gather around the table
, the old people
ple take pleasure in welcoming the
familiar faces that time is changing
and the new faces added to the widen-
ing tainily circle. It is a day of careless -
less mirth and thankful gladness.
Some go to church to find an expres
cion for the feelings which find them
voiceless , and othcrrs feel only vague
ly , if at all , the need of more than the
tacit acceptance and enjoyment of all
that the day brings. There are house
hold games and the sports of winter ,
hnd if the great football contests seem
lo overshadow moro spontaneous di
versions the actual figures would show
that not ono in a thousand of the
population of the country attends the
matches. The thoughts of the preachers -
ers are apt to turn to the betterment
of civic or political conditions , rea
soning that the way to show thank
fulness for public blessings is to pro
cure moro of them. Not even these
Eorious thoughts can turn the charac
ter of the day away from that impressed -
pressed it at the
upon beginning , an
occasion for feasting on what Provi
dence has bestowed in reward for
courage and for toll. The minor
etraln that runs through the music of
the affections is hoard by those whose
hearts once thrilled to voices silent
now , but the spirit of the day is to re
For what Is secure in memory , for
the blessings of the year and the day.
* ' for the promise of the future , may we
be truly thankful.
SET APART FOR GRATITUDE
Thanksgiving the Day of All Days on
Which We Should Remember
On Thanksgiving day most of UB ,
with deliberate Intention and perhaps
no little effort , close the door by
which grumbles enter and open wide
the other door that lets in praise. FOP
once gratitude has the right of way
and we are Just a little bit ashamed ,
to bo found in the dull company of
complaint. At the Thanksgiving serv
ice , If wo attend it , wo give ourselvea
to a deliberate enumeration of our1
blessings and remember , perhaps , howl
many there nro less favored than our
selves. There Is not time for a com
plete nnd permanent smoothing out of
the wrinkles of cnro and perplexity
before wo sit down at the bountifully
laden table , but on the whole wo are
ready to enter Into the spirit of the
time. Is Thanksgiving , then , a rever
sal or an occasional accentuation of
the proper habit of a Christian's life ?
If there must bo rusty hinges , should
they bo upon the doors of prnlsp ,
while the other door of grumbling
works with constant ease ? The un
disputed right of way in the Thanks
giving season ought to bo the right ot
way for all the year.

It is now thought probable that the
proposed constitutional amendment
requiring foreigners to become fully
naturalized before permitting them
to vote has been defeated. In a ma
jority of the counties which have re-
[ lortetl tlieir official vote to the secre
tary of state the amendment failed to
receive half of the total vote cast. In
some It failed oven to got one-third
of the votes. In order to carry , the
proposition must have a majority of
till votes cast at the election , and not
merely a majority of the votes upon
the question submitted. Anybody
who falls to vote either way practi
cally votes against it , because his vote
on candidates counts as on in the'
total of the election.
